Professor Luke O'Neill, author of The Great Irish Science Book answers my questions and give us his great book recommendations! Before jumping into the interview, please check out Luke's book The Great Irish Science Book:
Q. Do you have a favourite smart thinking book (and why that book)?
The Third Chimpanzee by Jared Diamond - really opened my mind to human evolution.
Q. What's the most recent smart thinking book you've read (and how would you rate it)?
I just read a book by Clive James called Somewhere Becoming Rain about the poetry of Philip Larkin that was really good. I’d rate it very highly as it’s succinct and so well written.
Q. Do you have a favourite childhood book?
Seems like a long time ago! I loved the Paddington books as a child and Lord of the Flies as a teenager.
Q. Do you prefer reading on paper, Kindle or listening to an audiobook?
Q. Do you have a favourite bookshop (and why that shop)?
Hodges Figgis on Dawson St- lots of choice!
